Our guide was very articulate and informative. The place is full of history and I certainly learned quite a bit. Definitely bring water, sunscreen, a hat and/or an umbrella if you go during Summer months. Very worth it.

churches and many more architectural marvels. Even a
brief excursion here makes plain why it’s called the
Garden District. So, when you visit be sure to give

St. Louis #1 is a popular one. You need to be part of a licensed tour to get in. But DO NOT MISS Metairie Cemetery. It is absolutely beautiful and full of history.
